On behalf of Bishop Thomas L. & Dr. Louise Baker Brown, Dr. Lisa Allen-McLaurin, Coordinator of the Practical Ministries Department, Mrs. Karen Searcy, Sixth District Director of Christian Education, and Rev. Montavious Brinson, Dean of Christian Leadership Training School, WELCOME to CTI2022-23!!

We are excited to come together as a Region and discuss the Quadrennial Theme, BE BOLD: FACE NOW, EMBRACE NEXT, SEE NEW in the context of implementing the CME Strategic Plan: Vibrant Church Development, Discipleship, Stewardship, and Congregational Ministry.

In-person CTI will be held for Adults; and CLTS for Youth & Children, 13-17 and 6-12, respectively. The sessions will start promptly at 8:30 AM.

In order to receive a certificate from your Region, you must attend in-person sessions. Members of the Region are expected to attend in-person.

Whether you attend in person or virtually, registration is required for everyone, including the youth and children. It is important that you register and select the correct Presiding Elder for your District.

  • Registration is $25.00 when paying your Elder directly; $28.16 if you pay through Eventbrite; and there is no cost for children and youth (ages 17 and under).

  • If you paid $25.00 to your Elder, please remember to select Enter promo code and enter PaidElderCTI and hit APPLY. This is the first step after hitting Get Tickets on the first page. Once the Joint Board Member has confirmed your payment with your Elder, you will receive a confirmation.

  • Your email address can be used for one person only. If you use your email address for a second person, the first user is canceled out. Each registrant must have an individual email address.

  • There is an option for adults to attend virtually, but you must select that option when registering. Prior to coming to the Zoom room, please RENAME your device with these prefixes and your name:

  • CLE Clergy (CLE Jack Doe)
